VMware Site Recovery provides customers with an easy and on-demand Disaster Recovery as-as-Service (DRaaS) for both their on-premises and VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) workloads. DRaaS is one of the most popular VMware Cloud Service as it literally enables customers to setup a fully functional target DR site with just a click of a button, no joke!
As simple as this is, customers are also interested in automating the setup of DRaaS, especially for testing purposes. A couple of weeks back, I had a customer reach out asking if it was possible to automate the setup of DRaaS?
Funny enough, I just had this conversation a few weeks prior with the PM/Engineer and was in the process of looking into this. It turns out we do indeed have DRaaS Service API, which is what the VMC Console uses, however we had not publicized the API nor showed how to actually get more information about it. Do not worry, I have already feature request with the PM to not only get this published publicly but also show up as part of the VMC Developer Center API Explorer 🙂
